  1. Thanks for all the great tips in the live stream! I love your videos! You’re my favorite dog trainer! I love your kind and simple techniques!
    God bless and hugs to you and Bree and the fur babies!☺️❤️
    PS: this little pup is sooo cute!☺️❤️🐾

    1. Im gonna get puppy this summer but Im not sure how to potty train her. I want him to pee and pup on newspepers. Do you have any advice hot to do that without thaz fence and doors. I want him to be free and go in every oart of ny apartment bu to poop and ped on one place

    2. Firebreather 911 Hi I did not use amy fences or gates we just put his pad down.
      In his first weeks he peed everywhere and couldn’t pee his pad, he tried to pee there but he couldn’t reach there at time.
      Than when he peed on the floor or pooped we put his pee and poop on the pad.
      They learn where to poop easy but they don’t learn how to pee cause they can’t hold it and It’s normal cause pups are babies too.
      When he peed on the floor we didn’t attract with him so he knew that It was a wrong move.
      And I suggest putting a towel near his pad because they prefer to pee to ir but chooste one that is the same color as his pad, then remove the towel ONLY ıf he is peeing there.
      The towel thing worked reallt well for me and you shouldn’t put his pad where he can smell his food, put it as far as possible
      You wouldn’t want to pee where you can smell food would you lol

  2. Thank you so much, these videos are going to be so helpful when my Border collie pup moves in! Also I’d like to say I really appreciate you taking your time to make these amazing videos and to help others. Thank you :))

  3. Hi Zak, I’m loving your tutorials and learning a lot from them. I do have a question though. I have two sibling puppies and it’s virtually impossible to train them together. I also find that trying to get one alone without the other interrupting or barking for attention, is also difficult. I would love to hear your thoughts on this dilemma. Regards Michael (UK)

    1. I KNOOOOOWWWW he said that but I watch all his videos so I thought I would know how to do it well and to say it’s not happening as fast (or at all) makes me so disappointed

  4. I wonder if it’s humanly possible for him to get upset or frustrated. I mean with anything not just animals. *Sits in 4 hour honking traffic* “Give it time eventually with patience the cars will move” *car move and inch* “Yes! You see that’s the reaction we’re looking for”

    1. Thanks for the laugh! Yes, so funny and probably true. He has the patience of a saint. Can’t wait till he has kids. LOL!

    2. Yeah it’s almost hard to believe he is American. Once the camera is off I’m sure he is becomes a jerk where things are always someone else’s fault. Treats people like they owe him. Everyday wanting someone to own up and be accountable but never ever doing that himself. He is unaware that 100% of Americans spend their time wanting someone else to be accountable. That can’t happen since 100% have no self awareness.

  5. I’m going to attempt to train some of the younger dogs at my local rescue so that the owners and volunteer staff will have an easier time. Thank you!

    1. I just adopted a timid puppy from a puppy mill. Because of the puppies background , he is very timid and shy. I wanted to take him to training classes, and went to Petco. I am so glad I came across your videos! The trainers at Petco weren’t bad, but what you teach creates a bond while learning. It is way different than how they trained, and more effective. I tend to overanalyze things, so the way you explain things as youre teaching makes things so much easier! Thank you for all you do!


      There are many components to house training a dog. One plan I discovered which successfully combines these is the Bevs Booster Guide (check it out on google) definately the most incredible plan that I have ever seen.look at all the amazing info .

    3. Canadians need to know we can’t order from any companies ýou use. Our neighborhood puppy pack is disappointed.

  7. I’m 24 and I’m about to get my first puppy ever in my life! Been watching your videos like crazy and I can’t thank you enough for all these incredible tips and advice!!

    Beyond excited to have my new best friend and to grow up with him during this stage of my life 😄

    1. #Because I’m SUPERMAN it’s going great! I have an aussiedoodle! Just now a year old 🙂 he’s too smart for his own good tho 😂

  8. I love your training videos so so much. I recently got my first own puppy since I turned 18 and you’ve helped me a lot! Last time I had a puppy I was 8… my beagle, dashhund mix is a very smart little guy but without your videos and techniques I would be lost! Thank you so much. Your patience is inspiring

  9. Heyy Zak! Im getting a new Golden Retriever puppy in a few weeks, and after watching your videos i feel really confident in what to do the first few months 😍! Thank you so much for the great lessons and i will continue to watch after i get the pup for more inspiration!

  10. Great teaching, objective and simple. We can apply the concepts and strategies every day, any time, not just when it’s training time. Thank you!

    1. Took me 8 minutes cuz she is an inquisitive dobie. Also it will take time to implant the sit command into her brain. She only sits cuz she thinks she will get the treat.

  11. Hey Zak! I just got a golden doodle that is almost 2 months old. Thank you for making this video because I think it’s very useful!

  12. Love these videos super helpful! I’ve had many bad training habits in the past such as verbally getting loud to correct bad habits, but with my new puppy I’m so happy to find these helpful training tips so that we have a pup that we’re proud of and respects us 😁

  13. *What a great **** ! Our 8 month old Goldendoodle loves. He even knows when comes on , because he knows Brandon’s voice now.This book not only gives you Brandon’s sure fire way to train your dog, it also gives you insight into what makes Brandon such an amazing trainer & the wonderful work he does with shelter animals.I highly recommend this book to all new & old puppy parents!*
